Current Legal Problems is the Faculty of Laws' flagship public lecture series, and was established over sixty years ago. The lectures are public and often chaired by members of the judiciary.
The Current Legal Problems (CLP) annual volume is published on behalf of UCL Laws by Oxford University Press, and features scholarly articles that offer a critical analysis of important current legal issues.
It covers all areas of legal scholarship and features a wide range of methodological approaches to law. With its emphasis on contemporary developments, CLP is a major point of reference for legal scholarship.
